Queensland's Callide Power Plant Now Firing With Retrofitted CCS Technology, an Industrial Info News Alert
(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/22/12 --
Researched by Industrial Info Resources Australia (Perth, Australia) -- A 700-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in Queensland, Australia, is now firing with retrofitted carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. CS Energy Limited (Brisbane, Australia), a state-owned company and leading generator of electricity, has modified one of the six steam boilers at its Callide Power Plant to use the oxy-fuel method of CCS. Work on the Callide A4 unit began in 2008, and now the exhaust gases from the 30-megawatt (MW) boiler are captured and burned in an atmosphere of pure oxygen. As a result, the output consists almost entirely of carbon dioxide (CO2), allowing for easier CO2 capture. Air Liquide (PINK:AIQUY) was selected to supply and build the 660-tonne-per-day oxygen plant and the CO2 capture plant.
